In March, College of Health Professions and Natural Sciences Dean Dr. Aaron Sebach was inducted as a distinguished practitioner and fellow of the National Academies of Practice (FNAP). Fellowship is bestowed on leaders who have made enduring contributions to interprofessional practice, and there is only one other fellow in Delaware.
In June, Dr. Sebach was also inducted as a Fellow of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (FAANP). Of the nation’s 335,000 nurse practitioners, just 903 are FAANP fellows, which is about a quarter of one percent. Professionals who earn fellowships have advanced the discipline through practice, education, research and policy.
Two WilmU graduates were also selected as FAANPs this year: Dr. S. Dale Jafari and Dr. Larider Ruffin.
